Hello, this is the first of what I hope will be a regular series of articles on Spain, specifically on growing industries, opportunities and jobs within Spain. I also hope to publicise news about Spain that doesn't normally reach the English language media, such as their strong exporting performance in recent years. I realise that a there is a lot of bad press on Spain currently (much of it justified), especially as regards debt and over-spending. Yet, I've found out through my research on building up my Spanish start-ups directory that there is an incredible amount of positive things happening out there. Forget the banking deals and the shady hedge fund deals - there is a lot of opportunity, and indeed business developments being undertaken. Although I will link at times to articles and posts in Spanish, I will keep this site in English as much as possible.
Next post to follow soon, on the amazing Spanish Start-up and Investor summit that took place recently over two days in Madrid.
